Chef Gerard's Award Winning Caesar Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2013
This dressing is absolutely wonderful, Bueny! Can't help but wonder why it's called Caesar Dressing since the ingredients nor the flavor is anywhere near Chef Caesar Cardini's original creation though.

Whiskey Marinade

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2014
Love, love, love!! My only major tweak was to use honey instead of brown sugar because I just don't keep brown sugar on hand. The minor tweak was since I used Jack Daniel's Tennessee Honey Whiskey (my absolute favorite of all time) was to reduce the honey amount by half ;-) Grilled with both boneless skinless chicken thighs and pork tenderloins (two batches of marinade) and will grill top round steak next time :-)

Birdman's Caesar Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2012
I have a recipe very similar to yours here so I can tell that when I give yours a try I'll like it :-) For those worried about using raw eggs you can use one tablespoon of mayonnaise per egg as a substitute or two to make the dressing creamier. I suggest using a good quality mayo because otherwise the flavor will be 'off'.

Quick Taco Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2012
Ahhh, someone after my own heart! Have done this since I moved away from home four decades ago with leftovers from Build Your Own Taco meals. Many who I serve to don't like taco seasoning so opt to use plain ground meat instead. Besides ground beef or chicken try pork because it's tasty too. And simply 'must' add diced avocado that has been tossed in lemon or lime juice and some fresh chopped cilantro to the ingredient list too

Caprese Burger

Reviewed: May 14, 2012
Delizioso!!! . I find your recipe absolutely delightful! I used your suggestion of substituting basil pesto for the basil, parmesan and garlic mixture, another reviewer suggestion of using sun dried tomatoes in lieu of tomato paste and yet another suggestion by another reviewer of using Ciabatta bread which I brushed with a bit of garlic infused extra virgin olive oil and lightly toasted.

Pan-Fried Asparagus with Onions

Reviewed: May 31, 2012
Five star for a very good quick and easy basic recipe! I wasn't in the mood for the butter flavor so used extra virgin olive oil instead. Also, used a sweet red onion because that's what I had on hand and it turned out great because the sweeter flavor was divine! Didn't use any seasoning because decided ahead of time to serve garnished with fresh finely shredded parmesan and sliced (julienne style) pre-cooked pancetta instead.

Backyard Cooper Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2012
Your recipe is awesome and a five star as is! However, I can't help tweak a recipe to my liking but the only true change I made with your recipe was to use 1/3 heaping cup fresh finely shredded parmesan. I know garlic powder and onion powder is easier but I took the extra effort for the fresh equivalents (3 tbsp plus 1 tsp minced garlic and 1 heaping tbsp fresh minced onion). I also made the entire five pounds and simply placed wax paper between the many extra uncooked patties, placed them in a zip lock bag and froze them for future use ;-)

Parmesan Baskets

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2012
I make parmesan crisps all the time but it never occurred to me to take one more step and form them into little bowls and fill with your favorite choice of goodies! Thanks so much for the idea!

Asian Style Paper Wrapped Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2012
A fun and tasty treat! I found the paper packets for this dish at a local mom and pop Asian market and fried half in foil packets and half in paper packets in a wok. Using either type of packet worked great. The presentation was prettier with the paper but the fun part about the foil was the mystery of not being able to see what was in the packets. One thing I would suggest, Sean, is to add one teaspoon of sesame oil to the ingredient list. Searched online for photos (my camera was out of batteries) and added a couple here so viewers know what the completed foil and paper packets look like. Next time I make these am going to try it with my Yakitori Tare marinade simply to taste the difference between them being fried versus grilled on a skewer. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Omelet in a Mug

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2012
Have been doing this for years and and years and just switch up the ingredients according to what have on hand. Love it that you can simply eat it out of the mug even on the go! The one thing I do differently is use three eggs yolks and one egg white because am not a fan of whites except using for meringue. Oh, and I slather room temp butter instead of cooking oil to coat the mug ;-)

Ukrainian Chicken Kiev

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
William, you have a really good personal recipe here! Thanks for sharing it! I don't keep bread crumbs on hand because I prefer the lighter, crispier Panko crumbs so used them instead. I also sprinkled one tablespoon of Panko on each piece of butter just before rolling the chicken to add more depth in the center. I am with others who are disgusted at the juvenile comments being left here! For those who mentioned the chicken being dry either the oil was probably not the right temperature and/or was over cooked. One other possibility is that they're simply not a white meat lover (white meat generally is on the dryer side) so just use chicken thigh meat instead.

Traditional Mexican Guacamole

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2013
Excellent guacamole recipe, Kaersten!I made just two minor changes due to personal preference; reduced tomato (used roma) to 1/2 cup and added 1/2 teaspoon crushed garlic for an added kick of flavor.

Maple-Garlic Marinated Pork Tenderloin

I used this marinade (without the pepper) to grill dark meat chicken kebabs and served them over calrose rice that was drizzled with the cooked reserved marinade - Yum!

Sunshine Juice

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2013
I've been making almost this exact drink for over a quarter century to have with a plain bagel or toast for most breakfasts during the week!! What I do differently is use a blender with 6 to 8 oz orange juice (3 to 4 oranges), 1 cup of raspberries, 1 banana and instead of using mint I add a couple of heaping tablespoons of vanilla flavored protein powder for the flavor twist and the extra nutrition it bestows.

Savory Garlic Marinated Steaks

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2013
Am not a balsamic vinegar fan so used red wine vinegar instead. Very happy with this marinade for both steak and chicken. Make a note to yourself regarding discarding leftover marinade: Instead of being wasteful simply cook it in a small saucepan at a slow rolling boil for five minutes and use it to flavor pasta or rice ;-)

Rum-beer Float

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2013
This recipe came in my inbox last night (Friday) and it was perfect timing to try because a couple of friends were over for a movie ;-) I didn't have root beer and spiced rum on hand but did have cherry cola, Bacardi Gold and French vanilla ice cream so gave that a try. YUM! Thank you so much for the fun, tasty idea and am now going to experiment with assorted soda and rum flavor combinations and, of course, with root beer!!

Japanese Style Deep Fried Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2013
Oh my goodness!! No words of praise are enough!! Don't forget to also deep fry some veggies to go along with the shrimp!! I sliced part of a zucchini 1/4 inch thick and peeled and sliced part of a sweet potato 1/4 inch thick and also used a few snow peas; of course you'll need to use more batter and egg accordingly. I suggest dredging the veggies before the shrimp (for bacteria reasons). I cheated and used Kikkoman Tempura Dipping sauce - Yum!! Oh, and the veggies took between 3 - 4 minutes to fry to be 'just tender'.

Simple Cream Cheese and Ham Spread

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2013
Wanted something with a little pizzaz for my bagels this morning instead of the usual plain cream cheese so decided to give this a try. I was not disappointed :-) One thing about turmeric is that the amount used in prepared mustards barely affects the mustard flavor but rather is used for its yellow color; it's the color of the seed used that affects the flavor so just use your favorite prepared mustard. My favorite is Grey Poupon Dijon so that is what I used. If you want more 'heat' then my all means use English mustard called for in this recipe or mix Colman's powder with equal amounts of water but add it to taste because Colman's is 'very' hot ;-)

Best Ever Beef Marinade

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2013
I used this marinade for top round beef kabobs (reserved some of the marinade to use for the rice I served them with) and marinated the kabobs with the rest of the marinade overnight and then grilled them medium rare - YUM! Thank you so much for sharing your recipe!

Chicken Asparagus Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2014
Yum, Yum, Yum! I did what others suggested by spreading sauce between the chicken and cheese then coating the roll-ups with more sauce before rolling them in the Panko. I personally don't care for anise flavored anything and almost used parsley instead of the tarragon but decided to be bold in thinking that cilantro would taste wonderful in the Dijon lemon sauce and I was not disappointed :-) If anyone else out there is like me and is not a lover of breasts please know that using boneless skinless thighs works wonderfully too! Thank you for a great tasting simple recipe, Monica!
